I installed/updated microsoft visual c++ 2013 and microsoft directX runtime 2013. After that, whenever i open qgis i get this

The program can't start because MSVCP120.dll is missing from your computer.

It looks like the MicroSoft installer got carried away cleaning up during the upgrade. I'm fairly sure that the QGis installer will add MSVCP120.dll if it is missing at install time so a simple QGis reinstall will fix the problem for you.
